Year 9 students attended a celebration event for having achieved the Archbishop of York’s Young Leaders Award. We were delighted to welcome Bishop John Thomson, Bishop of Selby, and Dan Finn, Chief Executive Officer of the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust, to join us a special guests.
The Bishop of Selby presented the awards to those students in attendance and spoke about which leaders had been an example to him in his life, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Dan Finn unpacked what it means to LEAD. He explained that you need to Love, to set an Example, to take Action and to Dream.
We were also treated to a musical performance by the same Year 9 band that had performed at the recent Community Coffee Morning and a specially made video featuring some of our students speaking about the volunteering they had engaged in. All who attended had a very enjoyable evening.
